Atleti star set for China move

Belgium international winger Yannick Carrasco's time at the LaLiga title-chasers is coming to an end with Spanish TV channel La Sexta claiming the club have accepted a £27m (R431m) offer from the Chinese Super League side.

The newly-promoted outfit who have former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Nyasha Mushekwi on their books cited the former AS Monaco man as their marquee signing and manager Diego Simeone has allowed the 24-year-old to enter contract talks.

After only eight starts in LaLiga this season, Carrasco has reportedly been unsettled over his long-term future at the Wanda Metropolitano and the imminent move suits both parties.

Since joining Los Rojiblancos in 2015, the 22-time capped Belgian star has scored 23 goals and registered 17 assists in 124 games across all competitions.
